Hello there! Hope you've had a good week. Not much to report on the knitting/crochet front this week. I've been so tired in the evenings that I've barely managed a couple of rows before I've fallen asleep! I'm hoping for better progress this week. I'm three quarters done now on the ripple scarf, and it's looking good. Just one more set of yarn repeats to go. It's just as well that I did start again, as I'd never have had enough yarn to finish the wide version.
I've done three pattern repeats on Monkey socks, so there's still a way to go on the second one. Not that I'll be needing to wear the socks for a few months (I hope) because for the first time this year, my feet 'got out'! I'm modelling my particularly scruffy garden sandals!
Mr JK was busy in the garden all day yesterday, potting on lots of veggie plants - swede, cauliflower, red and green cabbage, aubergine, celery to name but a few. The greenhouse is full to bursting, as it's still a bit soon to plant them out. The tomatoes are going great guns too. Can't wait to make tomato salad with the first pickings.
Despite all the activity in the greenhouse, he found time to fix this sign onto the shed. No comment!
Henrycat came and lazed on the table, soaking up the sunshine. I can't believe he will be 15 in four months time. He still chases around like a kitten at times!
I gave myself a little yarny pick-me-up this week. I'd seen some Colinette Jitterbug mini-skeins on Alexandra's blog, and so I popped over to Colinette, just to have a look (as you do!) and before I knew it, I'd somehow managed to order two Colinette Jitterbug Creative packs! Thirty two yummy little skeins of squishy, colourful perfection. They are destined for my sock yarn blankie.
